Sketching: iris...


Ik heb niet veel geschilderd deze week, deze iris is het enige dat ik kan laten zien.

DANKJEWEL allemaal voor de lieve reacties op de kaarten die ik heb verzonden!
Het was een leuke ervaring, die de blogwereld een beetje persoonlijker en minder virtueel maakte. 
Wie weet, doe ik het nog wel eens een keer!

Mijn blogvriendin Laura Leeder uit Canada heeft ook een kaarten GIVE AWAY momenteel. Zij schildert prachtige bloemen en vruchten stillevens, echt de moeite waard om eens een kijkje op haar blog te nemen!

~~~~~~

I did not paint much this week, this iris is the only thing I can show you.

THANK YOU all so much for the lovely comments I had on the cards I sent!
It was a nice experience, that made the blogworld a little more personal and less virtual.
Who knows, I'll do it again one day!

My blogfriend Laura Leeder in Canada also has a cards GIVE AWAY at the moment.
She paints beautiful flowers and fruits still lifes, really worth while to take a look at her blog!

~~~~~~

Simo, thank you for your good luck award!
Simo, grazie per il premio di blog portafortuna!

Judy said...

Hello Rita, your iris is beautiful! So many spring flowers to paint!

renate said...

Goedemorgen Judy :) Je hebt er weer heel wat moois van gemaakt. Prachtige kleuren. Heel mooi geschilderd. Nog een poosje en dan staan ze weer in bloei!

renate said...

He, volgens mij heb je ook een andere banner! Mooi hoor!

Judy said...

Dankjewel Renate! Die banner staat er al een tijdje. :) Het was wat gehannes met een fotoprogramma, maar het is gelukt!

John Simlett said...

How delicate. The gentle colouring is amazing, Judy. Most flowers in the UK come from Holland ... I can see why when I see your wonderful paintings :0)

Pat said...

Beautiful iris, Judy!
Thanks so much for the link to Laura's blog. She'd left me a comment and I couldn't view her profile to go see her blog, so this is fab. I've been and now I am following her.
Thank you xx

Tito said...

Lovely iris, Judy! Have a nice week end. Ciao.

Your iris is just enough for this week and so lovely. My irises have only just begun to grow, no flowers yet, but I can't wait to see them.

Mooi Judy en ja, het is echt leuk om een kaart van je te mogen ontvangen. Dank je.
Leuke banner heb je gemaakt.

Crystal Cook said...

This is just lovely Judy. :) A great contribution for the week.

Christiane Kingsley said...

This is very beautiful: I especially love the delicacy, softness of your iris.

Anne Le Maître said...

So lovely and delicate !
I have to try to sketch iris too. I have to find one, first...

On my table, I have pink lilacs to paint on this evening...

Blaga said...

Very pretty sketch, I like how you always vary the colors nicely to avoid them looking flat.
Everybody needs a break, even from their favorite activity. Have a very nice weekend, Judy!

Judy said...

Thank you John, it is hard to resist all the flowers available in the shops at the moment. But this one was painted from a photo.

Thank you Pat, I'm glad you found Laura, she is a wonderful artist!

Ciao Tito, thank you!

Thank you Maria, it's a pity irises don't last very long, that blue is irresistable!

Dankje Renske, was leuk om te doen!

Thank you Crystal!

Thank you Cristiane!

Thank you Anne, they are not easy to find in the shops because they fade so fast. Have fun with the lilacs, I am waiting for my lilacs and rhododendrons to bloom.

Thank you Blaga, I needed a little break!
